When a person has paid into Social Security with his or her payroll deductions, he or she can benefit from Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) if he or she becomes disabled. The process of obtaining SSD benefits can seem complicated and frustrating. With guidance from our Knoxville Social Security Disability benefits attorneys, you can navigate through the system and obtain the benefits you seek.
At the Law Offices of Tony Farmer & John Dreiser, we have been representing disabled individuals since 1974. Firm attorney John Dreiser was voted one of Knoxville's top Social Security Disability lawyers in Cityview Magazine in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. Our attorneys are uniquely qualified to provide you with effective assistance when filing for SSD benefits.
In Addition to a Diagnosis, You Need Adequate Medical Evidence
The Social Security Administration (SSA) has strict guidelines — it requires you to provide ample medical evidence to support your disability claim. Our Tennessee attorneys can provide the legal support needed to ensure complete medical documentation is provided to the SSA, no matter what disability our client has.
We assist clients who live with permanent disabilities such as:
- Ankylosing spondylitis
- Blood disorders
- Chronic fatigue
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Chronic pain
- Congestive heart failure
- Crohn's disease
- Hepatitis C
- Huntington's disease
- Lung disease
- Mental illness
- Multiple sclerosis
- Muscular dystrophy
- Orthopedic injuries
- Reflex sympathetic dystrophy
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
It is not uncommon for an SSD claimant to be denied at the initial stage. Our law firm handles Social Security Disability appeals and is often successful at this stage. If you have been denied, there are many options for you to continue seeking and ultimately obtain SSD benefits.
We handle SSD claims on a contingency fee basis. This means attorney's fees will not be charged unless you receive benefits.
